Welcome to A. T. Still University Online!


A.T. Still University was founded in 1892 as the result of one man’s quest to better medical practices and save more patients. A survivor of the bloody battlefields of the American Civil War, Andrew Taylor Still lost three children to spinal meningitis, his first wife to complications in childbirth and a daughter born to his second wife died from pneumonia. These tragedies caused him to re-examine what he knew of medicine and he challenged himself to use the study of anatomy and drugless treatments to better heal suffering people. Persecuted for his opinions that challenged current standards, Still did not give up his vision and struggled valiantly forward, finally gaining acceptance and a burgeoning practice in Kirksville, Missouri.

It was here that he began his school, A. T. Still University.

A. T. Still University has a fine reputation for providing education in whole person healthcare with a history that reminds our students to follow their heart and seek better methods and strategies. ATSU believes in the power of humanistic healthcare-- integrating healing to help body, mind and spirit. Encouraging scholarly inquiry and professional curiosity, we also try to give students the skills they need to become leaders and groundbreakers in their chosen fields.

A. T. Still University equips our students not only with the knowledge and hands-on experience needed to succeed, but we also seek to inspire the compassion needed to help more fully heal people’s bodies, minds and spirits. ATSU offers people in the health care field the opportunity to advance their degrees and standings while still benefiting from the flexibility and convenience online education offers.
